Gifting IRAs

If you’re at least 70 1/2 years of age and need to take a Required Minimum Distribution from your IRA, you can instruct your adviser to make a gift directly from your IRA to the Library Foundation (Tax I.D. #92-0081583) or Friends of the Library (Tax I.D. #92-0110295) and it will be removed from your taxable income. To initiate a gift from your IRA to the Library, please consult with your financial adviser and IRA provider for requirements and transfer procedures, and then notify the Library of your intent.


Did you know? You can name the Library Foundation or Friends of the Library as a beneficiary in your retirement policies to leave a legacy for future generations.
